Additional Notes

Complaint: On 12/31/2015 I brought my vehicle in for repair to replace rear struts. During drop off I advised the service personnel to take extra caution to the custom aftermarket stereo system that has been installed in the trunk. The service personnel advised me that he would take care of it. Upon pick up there was damage to the sub-woofer, specifically a dent. I immediately advised the service personnel of the damage and he brought out the technician that worked on the vehicle, he claimed he did not do it, gave me several scenarios on what and how it happened, after an hour of this I was able to speak to the service manager. He advised me to get an estimate for repair and we would go from there. On 1/5/2016 an estimate was provided to the service manager via fax from Sound Warehouse where the custom work was completed. On 1/6/2016 I received a call from the service manager and he advised me that he spoke with his general manager and they decided that they did not do the damage and are not going to do anything to repair the damage. The reason I was given is the technician has been with them for 15 years and he denies doing the damage and when damage to a vehicle is done that they are to come fourth with no repercussion. This is the second time I’ve taken my vehicle to Mike Hale Acura and damage has been sustained to my vehicle from their service department. The first time I had to bring it to their attention, the technician did not bring it to the service managers attention. I am very displeased with the service from this dealership and wish to have the damage they have caused repaired immediately.

Desired Settlement: I want compensation for the damage and time taken to repair the damage the service department has caused.

Business Response: Thank you for contacting me concerning this complaint.  I apologize for the delay in responding, BBB emails were not coming through the dealership's system.  I have read the complaint and investigated on our end.  Mr. ***** brought his 2004 Acura TL into our service department with a request to check the suspension.  It is our understanding that he had been at other shops trying to find the cause of the noise. He had previously been to a different shop who put aftermarket rear struts on.  Mr. ***** had us remove these and replace them with factory rear struts.  We also had his driver seat touched up by a vendor on our lot.  I have attached pictures which show that the seat back is flat with no protruding parts and the eat is only folded forward.  The speaker has a base ring that sticks out and the damage is to the cone of the speaker that is protected.  Also from the pictures the speakers is in the center and the struts are on the outside.  The technician that worked on Mr. *****'s vehicle is our master technician and we have the utmost faith that he would not damage a part of a vehicle or an accessory that has nothing to do with the area of the vehicle that he is working on.  If he did he would immediately bring it to our attention, which is our policy.  He has worked at Mike Hale Acura for 15 years with no issues.  The damage could have been caused by the other shop who worked on the vehicle, we honestly have no way of knowing.  My Service Manager asked for an estimate thinking that it would be a minor repair and would be worth a few dollars to keep the client happy as a courtesy.  Instead he was called with an estimate of over $1000.  Mike Hale Acura has a track record of admitting fault when we do something wrong or make a mistake; in this case it simply is not something that happened while our technician was working on the vehicle.
